Trump Administration: ‘Meat packers didn’t stop working during this pandemic . . . nor should our teachers’

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany made a bizarre comparison on Fox News when asked about teacher safety during the pandemic.

When asked about the issue, she responded that meatpackers continued to work during the pandemic. Yes workers in the meatpacking plants did continue to work. But they also suffered some of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the country. Also, things were so bad at the plants that Trump ordered the them to stay open. That is hardly the model of success that the White House should be referencing.

Watch the interview below to see how the White House feels about teacher safety – and how thin of a foundation their entire argument rests on.
